The importance of chairs is reflected in the fact that the variety of chairs is greater than for any other single household object.
A kitchen where life takes place
R1, designed by the architect Ulisse Narcisi for Rastelli, is much more than a simple kitchen.
Conceived as a real ‘program’, thanks to its wide range of elements, finishes and custom made possibilities, allows to turn the kitchen to real living area, ideally for those open spaces where it seems there’s no continuity solutions between different spaces.
A linear and extremely minimalist design marks all kitchen modules. Horizontal and vertical lines intersect to define rigorous and plain volumes, from the central islands to the bases, wall cabinets and wardrobes. In order to define spaces, the R1 system proposes proper solutions, shelves and open modules which confer a touch of lightness to the environment, departing the moulds of traditional kitchen cabinets.
The wide range of finishes offers endless combinations of custom compositions: woods, laminates, lacquered, liquid metal and glass, on various elements, proposed in soft and sophisticated colour shades. Doors can be enriched by sober details such as aluminium profiles, a more elegant option rather than the handle opening.
R1 introduces itself, among the Rastelli offer, as one of the most concerned about contemporary daily life needs. A new way of creating, designing and defining spaces according to one’s taste and personality.
